Thinking About Deleting Your Blog?

So many bloggers end up deleting their blogs for various reasons. Some might not have the time to write blog posts anymore whilst others simply might not see the point to continue. If you ask me, I would always encourage anyone to start a blog. There are so many benefits of having a blog, plus it’s a great way to share your thoughts.

Before you decide to press the “delete” button, there are a couple of things you might need to think about before making that decision. Without further ado, let’s jump into the post!

De nombreux blogueurs finissent par supprimer leurs blogs pour diverses raisons. Certains pourraient ne plus avoir le temps d’écrire des articles de blog tandis que d’autres pourraient tout simplement ne pas voir l’intérêt de continuer. Si vous me demandez, j’encouragerais toujours n’importe qui à créer un blog. Il y a tellement d’avantages à avoir un blog, et c’est un excellent moyen de partager vos pensées. Avant de décider d’appuyer sur le bouton “Supprimer”, vous devrez peut-être réfléchir à quelques éléments avant de prendre cette décision. Sans plus tarder, passons au poste!

WORRIED ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE?

If you are deleting your blog because of others in the sense people in your real life found out about it then it’s one of the biggest mistakes you could ever make. I was one of those people who didn’t share my blog in real life and didn’t want but I’ve reached a point in life where I don’t really care if others found it.

I just view it as promotion for my blog! At the end of the day, I’ll only be getting blog views which will help me tremendously when it comes to blog traffic so why would I miss that opportunity! But in all seriousness, you shouldn’t let others define your life in any way.

If you are worried about people judging your blog or talking behind your back, try to focus on the positives instead of the negatives. There will always be people talking, you shouldn’t let them control your life nor take over your life. The best they can do is read and check your blog posts & social media which will only bring you more views.

Si vous supprimez votre blog à cause d’autres personnes dans le sens où les gens de votre vie l’ont découvert, c’est l’une des plus grosses erreurs que vous puissiez faire. J’étais une de ces personnes qui ne partageaient pas mon blog dans la vraie vie et qui ne le voulaient pas, mais j’ai atteint un point dans la vie où je m’en fiche vraiment si d’autres le trouvent.

Je le vois juste comme une promotion pour mon blog! À la fin de la journée, je n’aurai que des vues de blog qui m’aideront énormément en ce qui concerne le trafic de blog, alors pourquoi manquer cette opportunité! Mais sérieusement, vous ne devriez pas laisser les autres définir votre vie de quelque façon que ce soit.

Si vous craignez que les gens jugent votre blog ou parlent dans votre dos, essayez de vous concentrer sur les points positifs plutôt que sur les points négatifs. Il y aura toujours des gens qui parleront, vous ne devez pas les laisser contrôler votre vie ni prendre le contrôle de votre vie. Le mieux qu’ils puissent faire est de lire et de vérifier les articles de votre blog et les médias sociaux, ce qui ne vous apportera que plus de vues.

DON’T SEE A FUTURE WITH YOUR BLOG?

Some bloggers decide to delete their blog in a spur of the moment because they don’t receive a lot of views, likes nor comments. I can absolutely understand where they are coming from because as a blogger, it can be discouraging to see a post not perform well in terms of traffic when you’ve put so much time & effort into it. But blogging is all about getting over those obstacles.

Successful bloggers didn’t start their blogs with thousands of followers nor views. They all started from the bottom and it took them years to be where they are at. You can’t expect to gain thousands of followers nor views instantly in a matter of weeks or months because that’s simply impossible.

There are bloggers out there who might have gained those results in a couple of weeks/months but it’s only a small number of them. It literally takes years to see a difference, the best you can do is to work on your blog consistently without giving up. Slowly but surely, you’ll start to see a difference gradually.

Certains blogueurs décident de supprimer leur blog très rapidement car ils ne reçoivent pas beaucoup de vues, de likes ni de commentaires. Je peux absolument comprendre d’où ils viennent, car en tant que blogueur, il peut être décourageant de voir un article ne pas bien fonctionner en termes de trafic lorsque vous y avez consacré tant de temps et d’efforts. Mais le blogging consiste à surmonter ces obstacles.

Les blogueurs qui réussissent n’ont pas commencé leurs blogs avec des milliers d’abonnés ni de vues. Ils ont tous commencé par le bas et il leur a fallu des années pour en arriver là. Vous ne pouvez pas vous attendre à gagner des milliers de followers ou des vues instantanément en quelques semaines ou mois, car c’est tout simplement impossible.

Il y a des blogueurs qui auraient pu obtenir ces résultats en quelques semaines/mois, mais ce n’est qu’un petit nombre d’entre eux. Il faut littéralement des années pour voir une différence, le mieux que vous puissiez faire est de travailler régulièrement sur votre blog sans abandonner. Vous commencerez à voir une différence progressivement.

LOST YOUR BLOGGING MOJO?

Sometimes it’s completely normal to have lost passion for blogging, we all do at some point. But that’s not really a reason to delete your blog. You might not love your blog anymore but your readers might do. You don’t know if someone keeps coming back at your blog for blog inspiration or if they love reading your blog posts. You can always keep your blog if you are under a hosting platform, there is no need to delete it. Your website will always be there on the internet and you don’t even have to manage it.

If one day you fall back in love with blogging, you’ll have to start everything all over again if you delete your blog. Just think about how much work you put into your blog, it will all go to waste. The only wise thing to do during this instance will be to do take a break from your blog and start blogging again if you are ready. If not, just delete all the apps from your phone and don’t think about your blog ever again!

Parfois, il est tout à fait normal d’avoir perdu sa passion pour bloguer, nous le faisons tous à un moment donné. Mais ce n’est pas vraiment une raison pour supprimer votre blog. Vous n’aimerez peut-être plus votre blog, mais vos lecteurs pourraient. Vous ne savez pas si quelqu’un revient régulièrement sur votre blog pour s’inspirer ou s’il aime lire vos articles de blog. Vous pouvez toujours conserver votre blog si vous êtes sous une plateforme d’hébergement, il n’est pas nécessaire de le supprimer. Votre site Web sera toujours présent sur Internet et vous n’aurez même pas à le gérer.

Si un jour vous retombez amoureux des blogs, vous devrez tout recommencer si vous supprimez votre blog. Pensez simplement à la quantité de travail que vous mettez dans votre blog, tout cela sera gaspillé. La seule chose sage à faire pendant cette instance sera de faire une pause dans votre blog et de recommencer à bloguer si vous êtes prêt. Sinon, supprimez simplement toutes les applications de votre téléphone et ne pensez plus jamais à votre blog!

WANT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING?

Some bloggers choose to delete their blogs because they grew out of their blog content/niche. They might have started with one topic and now after further reflections, they might realise that it’s not something they are passionate about. It’s completely okay to change or alter your blog content, you don’t have to delete your blog for that reason.

Take advantage of the platform and audience you already have built and just do a re-brand of your blog. I know sometimes it can be a huge trouble to change your blog/domain name if the name in question was related to a specific niche but you can always change it if you decide to upgrade your plan or go self-hosted.

If you are not ready yet then it’s always best to keep the domain name you already have and only change your blog name. Later on, in the future you can change it. Or even better, you can still keep that blog/domain name. It will look much more original and unique. Deleting your blog will be a drastic move when you only want to re-brand your website and incorporate/change your niche.

Certains blogueurs choisissent de supprimer leurs blogs parce qu’ils n’aiment plus le contenu/la niche de leur blog. Ils ont peut-être commencé par un sujet et maintenant, après de nouvelles réflexions, ils peuvent se rendre compte que ce n’est pas quelque chose qui les passionne. Il est tout à fait correct de changer ou d’altérer le contenu de votre blog, vous n’avez pas à supprimer votre blog pour cette raison.

Profitez de la plate-forme et du public que vous avez déjà construits et faites simplement une nouvelle image de marque de votre blog. Je sais que parfois, il peut être très difficile de changer votre blog/nom de domaine si le nom en question était lié à un créneau spécifique, mais vous pouvez toujours le changer si vous décidez de mettre à jour votre plan ou de devenir auto-hébergé.

Si vous n’êtes pas encore prêt, il est toujours préférable de conserver le nom de domaine que vous avez déjà et de ne changer que le nom de votre blog. Plus tard, à l’avenir, vous pourrez le changer. Ou encore mieux, vous pouvez toujours conserver ce nom de blog/domaine. Il sera beaucoup plus original et unique. La suppression de votre blog sera une décision radicale lorsque vous souhaitez uniquement renommer votre site Web et intégrer/modifier votre créneau.

There will always be a reason to do something but it doesn’t mean that’s the right thing to do. In my opinion, deleting your website is equivalent to letting go of an opportunity. As I mentioned above, if you don’t want to blog anymore – you have the right to remove yourself from that position. You are not tied to anything or anyone. But on the other hand, if you do decide to come back and write back again, it will be a complete waste.

I like to have a piece of myself somewhere on the internet where I know I can look back at it and reminisce the old times. I personally think it’s such a great reminder at your thoughts, passion and inspiration. Having your own platform is something that people could never even have thought about a decade ago.

If you don’t like your blog posts, you can always delete or archive them. If you don’t want to blog anymore, you can always leave it as it is. If you feel uncomfortable or ashamed of your blog which actually there is no need to be, just take a break or don’t take it too seriously. If deleting your blog is a must and you don’t see any other options then you know what’s best for you. I just hope that you will never regret your decision.

Il y aura toujours une raison de faire quelque chose, mais cela ne veut pas dire que c’est la bonne chose à faire. À mon avis, la suppression de votre site Web équivaut à laisser passer une opportunité. Comme je l’ai mentionné ci-dessus, si vous ne voulez plus bloguer – vous avez le droit de vous retirer de cette position. Vous n’êtes lié à rien ni à personne. Mais d’un autre côté, si vous décidez de revenir et de réécrire, ce sera un gaspillage complet.

J’aime avoir un morceau de moi quelque part sur Internet où je sais que je peux y revenir et me remémorer les temps anciens. Personnellement, je pense que c’est un excellent rappel à vos pensées, votre passion et votre inspiration. Avoir sa propre plateforme est une chose à laquelle les gens n’auraient jamais pensé il y a dix ans.

Si vous n’aimez pas vos articles de blog, vous pouvez toujours les supprimer ou les archiver. Si vous ne voulez plus bloguer, vous pouvez toujours le laisser tel quel. Si vous vous sentez mal à l’aise ou avez honte de votre blog, ce qui n’est pas nécessaire, prenez une pause ou ne le prenez pas trop au sérieux. Si la suppression de votre blog est un must et que vous ne voyez aucune autre option, vous savez ce qui vous convient le mieux. J’espère juste que vous ne regretterez jamais votre décision.

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING!

  1. The may be absent for sometime or inactive if I don’t have enough to express but definitely not going to delete my account as the hard of expressions and experience in the writings shared have made me think, is it me who had so much in mind and positivity expressed it

  2. Comme d’habitude, un article super intéressant. Honnêtement je n’ai jamais pensé à supprimer mon blog depuis 2015 parce-que je crois que ça me ferait trop de mal ahah. J’y ai consacré trop de temps pour ça! Mais je peux comprendre ceux qui passent le pas, même si je pense que si la raison est seulement due au traffic, partenariats et renommée c’est que la personne n’est pas forcément faites pour être blogueuse parce-que tout est dans la patience justement !
    bisous x

    1. Merci ma belle ! Absolument ! Surtout en ce qui concerne la monétisation. Si vous supprimez votre blog parce que vous ne pouvez pas en tirer d’argent, je pense vraiment que vous ne devriez pas avoir de blog en premier lieu x

  3. So well written. Et en français ainsi qu’en anglais; c’est super! :))

    WordPress.com (and a few other platforms) have a feature where one can temporarily (or permanently) make one’s blog private. I use that when I’m suddenly feeling FUD about blogging. I blog as a hobby though, not as a business. (Of course in the case of business or any money-earning blog, making one’s blog private would have financial consequences!)

    Again, absolutely lovely post, with excellent thoughts and advice!

    1. Thank you so much, Lia! It’s definitely a great feature if you want to make your blog private. Thank you lovely, I really appreciate it ☺️

  4. Amazing Post ! I completely agree with you. People talk , people criticise but one should not be ashamed of !
    After all, writing a blog needs courage and you are courageous.

    1. No matter how good you are, people will still try to criticize, unless those are aged people.

      I always believe in doing anything with plan. If you want to blog as a business, go for it! If you want to blog for fun, go for it! whichever you choose, give out your best. People out there are in need of your thoughts.

      Be strong, be confident and courageous. Figure out ways to keep you keep yourself motivated! And remember, it doesn’t harm to be helpful to people!

      I am where I am today because people’s thoughts contributed to it. .

      Give up naysayers and negative energy! Know your stuff, Know what you want, and know where you are going.

      Help others if you want to get it back, whether financially or otherwise!

  5. It’s so difficult to change niches. I started as a book blog and was so afraid to blog about other topics I was interested such as beauty or reviewing products I try out, making tutorials. In the end, I became very unhappy with my blog and left it rotting for months. When I came back, I decided to just blog away (still with dread) about other things. The fear was irrational. I didn’t lose followers, recovered my love for blogging and I’m still passionate about books 🙂

    1. I started off as a nail art blog and here I am with a lifestyle blog! As you grow, your interest will gradually start to change so that’s completely normal to incorporate other topics. I truly believe that if you are passionate about a topic, your readers will enjoy it as well. Thanks for reading hun 💗

  6. This is just so true. With the whole algorithm change, its become so difficult to connect with other fellow bloggers. I find the stats have also decreased but it makes me motivated to continue even more. Thank you for sharing hun xx

  7. Thanks for this. I have been considering changing my domain name but not sure what to change it too. A lovely fellow blogger gave me good advice and your post has helped too..I can always rebrand the name at some point ❤️😊

  8. I felt like this earlier this year i went through alot of mental health stuggles and decided to make my blog private for a while. At the time i wasn’t sure if i wanted to continue but after 6 or so months off i have found myself wanting to get back into it, so I’ve been redesigning my blog and going through my old posts and updating things and what not. I feel like I’ve found my passion again, i still have alot to work through personally but i feel myself getting back to to my normal self again and finding my passion and drive for creating and writing again.

  9. I have read your entry about ‘deleting your blog’. Interesting ideas and opinions you have in there. Smiles, I’m not thinking of deleting my blog but I clicked on that because I was interested in your angle on the topic. Nice work. Merry Christmas Peace, artfromperry

  10. I totally agree with this post. I started my blog in 2009 and stopped blogging altogether around 2012 because I started Uni. I am glad I just left it because I knew I would use it as my website when the time was right. Now I am back, still in Uni doing a Masters and WP has improved over the years, it is now my website and blog. I get to share my work as a portfolio and ramblings on my blog.

    Side note: Thank you for liking my posts.

  11. I can relate to this. I have deleted a post before and i’m thinking to myself maybe I shouldn’t have. Thanks for this!

  12. This is an excellent post! I’ve put too much time and work in my blogs to delete then. With that said, I have modified them several times. I have trashed posts and rewritten them and I have deleted a few posts. My 2 blogs have different themes so I can express myself in different ways. I would put my blog in a private mode before deleting it and also, we should always keep a back up of our blogs.

  13. Thank you for this! I have deleted and returned to blogging multiple times because I feel like I’m failing at blogging. This is what I needed to read!:)

  14. Great post…woow like seriously I am happy reading this post, because you just gave me another mindset on how to be a good blogger. Thanks so much

  15. thankyou for such a great thinking. you just stop me to delet my blog..🙏🙏☺☺❤❤❤

  16. Hi New Lune, I love this post. I am new to blogging since Nov 19, it really is proving to be a great vehicle for my thoughts that are always rattling around my head, I have so many articles in there, and out they come one at a time.

    Wishing you many blessing for 2020 x
